From this 451 Research report:
“The proposed solution architecture is based on both centralized (detection and control) and distributed (mitigation) elements, typically owned by many different parties – hence the need for federation. The most innovative (or challenging) aspect of what Freedman suggests is the economic model: make the mitigation technology is cheap as possible; include a ‘settlement’ system in the architecture that compensates those performing the mitigation when protection is invoked (incoming traffic would be redirected only when an attack is detected).
Freeman has been around the block many times, and understands that what he is proposing would be unlikely to happen under ‘normal’ circumstances. His hope is that the seriousness of recent threats, and the clear potential for much worse attacks, will be enough to motivate the Internet ecosystem to consider something new for the collective good.”
